Just about a month after the death by suicide of Wynonna Judd’s mother, Naomi Judd, the 58-year-old took to Instagram to reflect on life without Naomi.

“Recording. There’s so much going on in the world right now,” Wynonna began in the caption alongside an image of her performance. “Before I sat down to write this, I was like, ‘No…I don’t know what to say.’ Then I heard the words of my life coach asking me, ‘What do you know?’ And I started crying.”

She continued, “WHAT DO I KNOW??”

Wynonna shared that the public memorial wasn’t easy for her, but that’s “what a dysfunctional family does.”

“It’s not easy. I don’t know why we do this in public. It sucks,” Wynonna said, accompanied by Ashley and Strickland on stage. “But we do, don’t we? We show the world what a dysfunctional family does. We show each other for each other.”
